We offer an number of session types to suit the look you are after and can at time be a mix of sessions. Below you will find out more about each session available to you and also view my online portfolio for examples of my work.
Get ready for a day of fun and madness!
Unless you have special requirements I always suggest using your dogs favourite walk. This is where they will feel comfortable and most happy resulting it better shots.
I like to spend time with you and your pal and walk for a while (30-40mins), as this allows me time to get to know you both and ensure your pal is comfortable having me and my equipment around. It also helps burn off some of that endless energy. Check out our online portfolio for outdoor sessions for some examples of my work.
The time of year and day play a big part in your booking.
During the spring and summer months it is best to avoid the midday sun as this can cause over exposure unless in shaded areas such as forest walks. Equally during autumn and winter we want to use the light to our advantage so around midday/afternoon bookings tend to work best
My studio sessions allow for clean shoots with or without the addition of props and using various backdrop and lighting techniques. Be sure to view our online portfolio to see a sample of our studio shoots.
Most importantly I allow extra 'get to know you' time', to ensure that everyone, 4 legged and 2, is relaxed and ready to enjoy the time we have together. This is a must especially for our studio sessions when your pal will be required to spend time indoors and sit/stand in various positions. Getting to know them as much as I can not only allows your pal to fully relax but gives us the opportunity to capture their true personality.
We can also make use of our outdoor space as our grounds rest in 4 acres, this is not additional cost and also can be a welcome break for some dogs.
Life Companion Sessions
Our Life Companion Sessions are a special shoot for terminally ill or elderly pets. The time spent during these sessions depend entirely on your pal, but note that they do tend to last longer than our other sessions.
I am use to dealing with the emotions which these sessions often bring up, I have lost pals in the past too and know how tough it can be. It accept these bookings as an honour and do my upmost to capture images of your pals personality and the love you feel for each other.
These sessions can take place in our studio, outdoors or even your own home, whichever place you and more importantly your pal will feel most comfortable. It can even be a combination of the above.
Often there isn't much notice, given the circumstances. On these occasions I do my upmost to accommodate. This can and has meant re-arranging previous bookings which the majority of customers are more than happy to do.
